Tasting Notes

Vibrant light yellow with green tints. Elegant nose melding citrus, white flowers and a mineral note. Toasty, brioche aromas augmented by a touch of preserved lemon. Delicacy and finesse in the mouth, not a heavyweight style but still with energetic, juicy fruit and a long, fine, pithy finish.
The wine offers real character.
Pairs beautifully with cheese, mixed salads, grilled fish, especially with sauces, sea foods, and white meats..
